2021, the year the price of smartphones peaked?
There are different users in the world of mobile telephony. Some prefer cheap phones less than 200 euros, others prefer smartphones that are a little more expensive but don’t exceed the limit of 700-800 euros, and others want the best regardless of what a smartphone costs.
The latter are the people who spend more than 1,000 euros a year on a high-end device, and that’s what we wear a couple of years during which the price of smartphones does not stop growing. Illusions from us who thought the price of smartphones had peaked!
Now 2021 could be another year, and some industry “experts” think this year could bring some surprises. A year in which the price of smartphones could stagnate.
2021: Are price increases over?
A few months ago we joked that cell phones could cost more than $ 2,000. It doesn’t seem very far-fetched these days.
With every new generation phone, we see the price increase. Better screens, more powerful processors, more and better photo sensors, new technologies like 5G … There are many “excuses” for increasing the price of equipment year after year.
As reported by Android Authority, Jeff Moore of Wave7 Research dares to make this claim 2021 could be the year brands stop releasing increasingly expensive smartphones.
As he said earlier, the success of smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE should make various companies recognize phones of this style (medium / high ranges with prices included). is what users want.
However, this fact doesn’t just apply to Samsung. LG confirmed an improvement in sales thanks to devices like the Velvet, a really nice, inexpensive and powerful terminal that is not high-end that we could analyze and that we really liked. Also Apple with its iPhone 12, possibly one of the “cheapest” top quality products we can find today.
In order to? The current market confirms that most users are betting on high-end terminals, but not more than 1,000 euros / dollars. High performing devices without the unattainable price tag of most companies’ flagship products.
Experts therefore say that expensive phones will still be around in 2021 There will be an increase in “cheap” high-end smartphones for sale. Smartphones with the best on the market but that don’t require you to take out a mortgage to buy. If so, 2021 can be a great year.
